Cleaning & Maintenance
Let’s be honest, no one really looks forward to cleaning the top of their stove. Things do tend to get a little messy around what, in most homes, is a well-used area, especially if you do a lot of cooking. Just think of all those spilt sauces and oil splatters.
We’re all aware that an unclean stove top is not only unhygienic, but it could also prevent your appliance working at maximum efficiency. And, aesthetically, it could mar the overall look of an otherwise spotless kitchen.
The metal grease filters in a range cooker hood work hard to rapidly clear your kitchen of steam, fumes and odours when cooking, especially when you’re frying, sautéing or using a wok.
As the filters are out of sight on the underside of the kitchen hood, it’s all too easy to forget about them. But, while cleaning hood filters may not be everyone’s favourite task in the kitchen, not doing so could affect the performance of your extractor fan.
With temperatures already dropping, it’s getting towards that time of the year when you’ll be using your wood burner more and more.
Before winter really sets in, now’s the time to give your wood burner a good clean. It obviously needs to be cool before you do this, so tackle the job before it’s on permanently.
So, how to clean a wood burning stove. Well, there are many branded cleaners available for wood burners, as well as plenty of DIY methods.
